This is a question Hypocrisy

Overheard the other day: "I've told you before - stop swearing in front of the kids, for fuck's sake." Your tales of double standards please.

Pro Life.
It always makes me laugh to see Pro-lifers bunging eggs at abortion clinics.

It's like Bill Hicks says -
"You know who's really bugging me these days. These pro-lifers ... You ever look at their faces? 'I'm pro-life!' (Bill makes a pinched face of hate and fear, his lips are pursed as though he's just sucked on a lemon.) Bill: 'I'm pro-life!' Boy, they look it don't they? They just exude joie de vivre. You just want to hang with them and play Trivial Pursuit all night long.

You know what bugs me about them? If you're so pro-life, do me a favour - don't lock arms and block medical clinics. If you're so pro-life, lock arms and block cemeteries!

Let's see how committed you are to this idea.
Bill: (as pro-lifer) She can't come in! Audience laughs.
Bill: (as confused member of funeral procession) She was 98. She was hit by a bus!
Bill: (as pro-lifer) There's options!
Bill: (as confused member of funeral procession) What else can we do? Have her stuffed?

I want to see pro-lifers with crowbars at funerals opening caskets - 'get out!' Then I'd be really impressed by their mission."

But eggs sold to consumers never would have turned into chicks...
They keep the fertilised ones to be born. Am I missing something? =/

And early-stage foetuses removed from the womb would never become babies. They're not killing it; they're just removing something that it needs in order to develop into a living creature...just as not fertalising the egg is removing something the egg needs to produce life.

Sure, the early-stage foetus is alive, but does it have a functioning brain? If not, it's no more a "person" than any other bunch of cells in the mother's body...because hey, THOSE cells have the potential for life too, don't they, if we took them and used them as the genetic basis for a cloning procedure.

And anyone who says the comparison is unfair because one is unnatural science and the other is not, come off it. Childbirth is anything but natural these days, in our society anyway. It's just as much a science. You only have to look at the machinery and medication and armies of doctors and nurses in maternity wards to conclude that.

Do pro-lifers refuse treatment to remove tapeworm from themselves? I wonder...

Not quite the same
Eggs you buy are more chicken periods than chicken abortions- they will lay them regardless of whether there is a cock (hehe I said cock) about.

Anti-abortion religious nutjobs are still a bunch of cunts though
